HISTORY

Its initial construction was 46% funded by the Works Progress Administration (WPA).

Elementary students in St. George attended the Woodward School until ???? when the elementary grades (up through sixth grade) were moved over to the newly constructed St. George Elementary School.

This was the elementary school in St. George until 1955 when the students were divided between East and West Elementary Schools.

The building and grounds continued to be used in conjunction with West Elementary School and was referred to as The Annex Building.

The St. George Elementary School was put on the National Register of Historic Places (#1985000820) on April 1, 1985.
